Observations of language

'My bad', My bad what???? No - this is a way to say sorry. ie my bad behaviour. My screw up. Shorthand. Odd. I get a lot of emails. "Sorry, my bad." Last time I looked - bad was an adjective - not a noun but who am I to quibble? I feel. Americans FEEL a lot. Brits THINK. They feel it is a good bottle of wine. They feel that something is a good idea. Now I am not convinced that thinking is better than feeling. Normally I am a proponent of feelings but also makes me laugh. This is the country that 'feels' that climate change doesn't exist and 'feels' that America is the be all and end all. Perhaps a little more thinking would be useful?
